The Nanny Goat 24 hour race takes place on a one mile dirt loop on a private horse ranch located in Riverside California. The race is open to solo runners or teams of four runners. Teams may be all women, all men, or mixed. The object is to complete as many laps as possible within an alloted 12 or 24 hour period. Any runner logging 86 or more miles in 24 hours may continue to 100 miles (with a firm cutoff at 28 hours).
The course is flat, the footing is good (weather dependent), and the trail is wide enough to allow easy passing... Support is never more than a half mile away. Aides, spectators, and handlers can camp within feet of the course. The race will start on Saturday Morning at 8:00 am and will end on Sunday at 8:00 am Progress will be posted on the internet in real time.
Race progress is by timing chip attached to your shoe. As you cross the timing trap your name and mileage is projected on the barn wall.... No guessing and no need to bring lap counters.
As with all Old Goat venues schwag will be presented to all entrants. Tech or Bamboo shirts, mugs, etc. .. In addition to the food and tasty beverages provided in the transition area, there will be a Saturday afternoon BBQ and a Sunday Morning Pancake Breakfast for competitors, their immediate supporters, and race volunteers.. Moonbucks coffee drinks will be available for a modest donation.
There is ample parking, camping facilities, showers and toilets adjacent to the course.
